Its been a hard year for Ariana. As fans know its been a difficult time for her as she continues to grieve her ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller who died from a drug overdose early last month. Not to mention she is still trying to overcome the post-traumatic stress disorder that she developed from the suicide bombing that killed 22 people at her concert in Manchester, United Kingdom, last year. The newest obstacle she is set to overcome is her split with ex-fiancé Pete.
